Truck crash injures 50 shoe factory workers

A truck crash in Kampong Cham province’s Batheay district injured 50 shoe factory workers, five of whom required treatment in Phnom Penh for severe injuries.

A total of 60 employees of two factories in the province’s Cheung Prey district were riding on the back of the truck when it veered off the road, crashing into trees and cutting the vehicle in half, Batheay District Governor Som Nal said yesterday.

The driver fled the scene. Some of the injured received no treatment, 40 were sent to Skun District Referral Hospital and five are being treated for broken bones at Calmette Hospital.
